A powerful second-half performance at Croke Park propelled All-Ireland favourites Kilkenny beyond a determined but ultimately outclassed Cork side to the Leinster SHC title. Conor Cooney’s eight-point haul lit up a provincial decider that will be remembered for the physical power and point scoring ability of Micheal Donoghue’s Allianz league champions.
Cooney went through three different Cork defenders on the afternoon while Joe Canning consistently punished slack defending and converted 10 placed balls. Joseph Cooney was excellent too as Kilkenny, leading by three points at the break, pulled clear with a tremendous third quarter display.
